well....... I cut a carbon one out, using the V1RR Evo one as a template, then drilled the 3 holes in the correct positions.
Its REALLY easy, and you can get nylon sheet too, if carbon is "illegal"

I would make them for people, if the F1 grade 3.3mm carbon didnt kill FOUR sawblades just for one bumper!

It's available in Hong Kong. I just ordered 2 yesterday and it's on it's way here.

i never have tried it either before, because it is not legal. but i am running an enduro in a week and a half and it is legal for this race. plus, our mechanic is not going to work on our car too long if we are losing but we have a pretty good team. one of the drivers use to be fully sponsored by serpent... not a 50% deal, but the full ride.

I did my first test today with the 2.5mm chassis. The car felt superdialed. The car obviousely has more traction. The chassis is flimsy though, I don't know how it will hold up in a bad crash. ( I have had to bend back the 3mm from a very hard hit). I shaved off .5mm from the bottom, re-countersunk all the screwholes and mounted everything. The front swaybar mounts are .5mm below the chassis, but they wore even with the chassis before much running. So far I am very impressed. I'll have to see how it does in a race this weekend.

Well, I'd just get a body and try. I once tried to fit one on my FW05R and it was a pain and I gave up. The shock towers were too high and the only way was to expose part of the shock tower and I didn't bother. Later Kyosho came out with a lower shock tower for the lola but I lost interest since I couldn't race that body.
